MSUEWQ has been involved with volunteer monitoring since 2004. We work collaboratively with watershed groups across the state to help educate citizens on non-point source pollution issues, foster stewardship on water resources, and help develop monitoring programs that can collect credible data to help inform management decisions. Key partners in this work include the Monitoring Section of MDEQ and the Montana Watershed Coordination Council water monitoring resources section.
